            Most TV manufacturers are already cutting 8K TV production, because they're failing to sell much. The industry isn't going in that direction, that much is becoming clear.

            how much better does upscaling look on an OLED or is it still shitty?

            Depends on the manufacturer. Sony and LG are usually seen as the best in regards to it.

      TV manufacturers will try to push it, but the film industry has no good reason to move on to 8K. Physical media sales are shrinking each year, and 8K makes zero sense for streaming.
      Another big reason is that the theatrical DCP standard only supports resolutions up to 4K, so 8K isn't happening theatrically either any time soon. It would require nearly every theater to replace their projectors, and for what? Most people wouldn't be able to tell an 8K projection from a 4K projection. Only Dolby Cinemas support 8K projection, because they have their own proprietary tech, but no feature film has taken advantage of it.

              It's the exact opposite, older films that are produced purely from camera negatives or interpositives make the best 4K releases because they can be scanned natively at 4K. Films that use digital compositing and CGI are almost always mastered in 2K because trying to render effects shots in native 4K is still way too intensive even for the biggest effects studios. One I can think of is DUNC but that was rendered out at 3.5K.

                Maybe there are some now but all the major digital effects films of the past 24 years are stuck in 2K because that's what the digital effects were rendered out as. Maybe one day AI upscaling can produce good results but I don't think it's that big a deal.

                Do you understand what native means? It means that the image is mastered to that resolution, no upscaling. 4K is more "as they were originally" than scanning it at a lower less detailed resolution.

                extremely no.
                4k is an integer multiple of 1080p (a single 1080p pixel becomes a 2x2 grid of 4k pixels)
                you can play 1080p content on a 4k panel with integer scaling with zero loss of clarity.
                but that is tarded, because you can instead use upscaling, both for media and games.

                on the gaming side, dlss is generally agreed to be enormously good

                on the media side, use mpv with FSRCNNX (or anime4k for anime/cartoons) or madVR with NGU
                or, if you have the patience for it, there are even better non-realtime upscalers. if you don't require that the upscaling happens live as you watch, you can devote more compute time to it and get even better results.
                don't remember any model names, but a good place to start if you have a beefy nvidia gpu is pirating the topaz ai software.

                go read some papers or something, you're obviously clueless.

                first of all, if you are watching a source video in a lower resolution on a higher resolution screen, there is ALWAYS some upscaling done. unless you're watching windowed that is, but who the frick does that.
                the only question is what sort of upscaling you want to do.

                second, AI based upscaling like what i recommended works by recognizing/exploiting patterns. it sees a blurry section of office building, recognizes it as such, and reconstructs the lost detail
                loads of AI upscalers have been shown to be superior both in purely quantitative metrics as well as perception based metrics.

                dlss in particular is generally agreed to be often (~half the time) *better* quality than the native resolution image, using a quarter of the source pixels. and the rest of the time, its pretty close in quality to native, while gaining you a shitload of performance.

                obviously I meant AI upscaling, and I know how the shit works. I've been running NLP models since I did gradwork in 2015 and feature detection since tensorflow 1.0. I don't care how good your algorithm is, what percepual loss function you're using, it's making a guess and inventing detail that is *likely* to be there, but it's still a guess. Understanding how it works is precisely why I don't want it; I don't want guessing, I want the original as intended by the director or none at all.
                DLSS does net a performance gain but again it is used as a crutch for shit performance which is the problem I have with it.

                i assure you, pixelation due to low res was not intended by ANY director, EVER.
                well, except for all the scenes where you have video cam footage inside the movie, in those cases its intended.
                but in any other case, an upscaler that gets you closer to the intended image is always an upgrade

                also, despite being a college educated person, you failed quite astoundingly to refute my central thesis:
                you will ALWAYS have upscaling, its inevitable unless you watch windowed.
                AI upscaling is just the best option we have currently, so its what you should use.

                Not all upscaling is AI upscaling. There are tons of different methods. TVs really don't tend to use AI upscaling, because it's too resource intensive to do in real time.

            theoretically no, in practice probably yes

            if you have a long enough HDMI cable and can get wireless signal from your TV location to your PC location, you can absolutely do it with one pc only
            but for most people that's not going to be very practical
            also, if you have a laptop, theoretically you can just pick it up and place it next to the tv, hookup hdmi etc, but again, not practical, you'll get annoyed by doing this very quickly.

            on the plus side, for a minimal such setup, you don't need much. when you upgrade your pc, your old one will almost certainly suffice.
            for the highest quality upscalers out there, you need a dedicated gpu, albeit not a very beefy or new one. no igpu will do FSRCNNX, but even an rx500 series will manage easily.
            assuming you do have a dedicated gpu, the cpu basically doesn't matter, as you'll be decoding/upscaling with the gpu anyway
            ram doesn't really matter either (tho its nice to have at least 16gigs just to be able to run a browser nowadays...)

          it will never improve beyond inventing fake detail to impress morons
          either get a higher res rip or use good old fashioned lanczos

      >on an oled
      the panel type has no bearing on the quality of the upscalers used

      as

      Not all upscaling is AI upscaling. There are tons of different methods. TVs really don't tend to use AI upscaling, because it's too resource intensive to do in real time.

      explained, generally you won't find state of the art AI upscalers built into TVs, as they don't have the hardware

      if you want to mess around with them (spoiler, you do, they're quite a bit better), you need a pc with a dedicated gpu to do the work.
      doesn't need to be a very beefy or new gpu, eg an rx580 will easily handle FSRCNNX, but yea, you need a real gpu, not just the igpu in your laptop...

      That sounds great. Stremio really is the best in the market for all your content streaming needs. Look nowhere else, all for a low price to boot. I wouldn't be anywhere without my Stremio

    fricking 55 inch 4k tvs cost like 200-300 bucks
    anything below 4k these days is a fricking small tv like 20-30 inches or fricking computer monitors and they aren't even that much cheaper

    quick search from best buy
    >32 inch 1080p tv $139
    >43 inch 1080p tv $169
    and that's like the biggest 1080p available
    >43 inch 4k tv $169
    >50 inch 4k tv $220
    >55 inch 4k tv 250

    so why do you stupid fricking boomer homosexual morons act like 1080p is widely available these days?
